– Pastor Sam Adeyemi Covid 19 Submission & the 5G Conspiracy theory
Senior pastor of the Daystar Christian Centre, Sam Adeyemi, was in a live chat on Instagram with Pastor Poju Oyemade, the senior pastor of The Covenant Nation, yesterday, Tuesday, 7th of April were he falsified the theory which states that Coronavirus and 5G are related to anti-Christ conspiracy.
Pastor Sam Adeyemi, digging into archives of about a 100 years ago during the Influenza Pandemic, said churches, mosques, schools and markets were shut in Nigeria when the pandemic hit the world in 1918.
During the live Instagram chat with Pastor Poju Oyemade, Pastor Sam Adeyemi said he studied how the 1918 pandemic affected Nigeria, so he could give perspective to his followers on the novel coronavirus disease.
Taking a question from Pastor Poju Oyemade on how a leader can handle crisis like the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), Pastor Sam said people have been giving extreme interpretations of the crisis.
He added that the leader’s role in a crisis is to give perspectives, stating that he studied the last global pandemic before COVID-19 to give the right perspective.
“I went online, there was a pandemic 100 years ago, let me go and study it and check it out, because the interpretation that people are giving to this pandemic, they range from one extreme to the other,” Pastor Sam Adeyemi said.
“I don’t even want to go into the details now, but there’s quarrel on social media now; from 5G to 10G and other things. I decided to check, how did it affect Nigeria?”
In 1918, there was a global pandemic caused by the Spanish flu, which spanned January 1918 to December 1920.
It was estimated to have infected 500 million people – about a quarter of the world’s population at the time and killed 50 million people worldwide.
Relating the 1918 pandemic to the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, Pastor Sam said: “I found a research article by a history lecturer at the University at Birnin Kebbi. Beautiful research!”
“I had to buy it. But I was happy buying it, because when I read it, it was amazing, it dug into the British archives, all the records that the colonial officers kept.
“[In] 1918 September, when the thing hit, the way air travel now is the main thing for global transportation and it was air travel that moved the coronavirus around, it was sea travel that spread the influenza around then.
“The ships that brought sick people into the Lagos port; I got the names, the dates they arrived, how it spread in Nigeria.
“I’d tell you the one that I saw and almost screamed, they closed churches, they closed mosques, they shut down schools, they shut down markets. 1918. So, some of us now think it is the anti-christ that is at work, he does not want us to gather together and fellowship.
“We should just be thanking God that we have internet now and we can be relating without meeting together. They shut churches in 1918. So when the leader takes perspective like that, then you can calm people down and tell them there will be life after this thing.”

Pastor Sam Adeyemi said there are opportunities in every crisis, and it is the leader’s duty to see the opportunities and not to project fear on his/her followers.
Between Pastor Chris Oyakhilome,Pastor Mathew Ashimolowo & Femi Fani-Kayode…
Earlier in the week, Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo of KICC London, had also said something similar to Pastor Sam Adeyemi Covid 19 submission with many believing he was referring to Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, senior pastor of Believers Loveworld, aka Christ Embassy. Pastor Chris Oyakhilome who had called for prayers said there is a conspiracy being covered by the spread of Coronavirus and a bigger agenda is in the works. He however called on the members of Believers Loveworld and the world at large to raise an alter of prayer in order to bring the plan of the enemy to nothing.
While many negative reactions followed Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s stance, others are of the opinion that he should be taken very seriously. As a matter of fact, Nigerian politician, essayist and lawyer, Femi Fani-Kayode wrote a long article applauding Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s views and condemning those who are against it.
No one knows the time Jesus will return and we cannot totally debunk all that the world is facing that tthey are not pointers to the end time.
Whether it is true or false. There is a rude awakening caused by the global effect of the Coronavirus pandemic.
In the midst of it all, there is a possibility many are not even considering…
What if in the midst of this conspiracy theory, Jesus suddenly comes today!
